I would like to install many wemo controlled dimmers in my home.
This hasn't been discussed here in a while. PLEASE build a Wemo dimming light switch!
I am surprised that they haven't added this with a firmware update already. It needs to be a feature. As well as 3-way switching. Insteon has this. Does a Belkin rep ever look at these and reply? Maybe the switch isn't physically capable and there will be a new switch made. Didn't see any announced at CES.
I would like to see a dimable switch and possibly a switch to control a celing fan.
I am at the point at my house where I need to make a decision ofcontinuing with Wemo or change to insteon for all lighting due to insteon having the capability of dimming and 3 way switches.
I really hope Belkin wakes up here and realizes we want a dimmer switch and 3 way lightning
A wall mountable controls would be nice as well instead of haning to use your phone everytime.
If you're upgrading anyway perhaps you want to look at smart LED bulbs instead of installing dimmers?
Dimmers work best with incandescent bulbs which are passee. They sort of work with fluorescent. But they're totally not needed with LED bulbs. (I do realize there are some situations where you must have a dimmer - fan/motor speeds, big chandelier, fixtures with no LED alternative, but those are disappearing).
So I have to side with Belkin on this one, dimmers would be down on my priority list.
Definitely three way switches would be nice. Though you can already do many things with the 2 way switches in 3 way applications depending on how they're wired (there's some topics here on that already).
There are 3rd party apps to help you set up (more than one) wall mounted central console for all of your home automation. Using a generic tablet rather than a vendor specific one makes more sense to me (see threads like "Greatest idea of ALL time" and similar). I'm assuming here by wall mountable you mean something other than the wemo switches themselves as I already have those on my wall .
I just purchased a WeMo light switch to be controlled by my Amazon Echo (something just added to the functionality of the Echo today), and am I correct in reading this thread that the WeMo switch, which is by no means inexpensive, can't do what X10 and Zigbee switches have done for more than 20 years, i.e., dim bulbs from a controller (App, Echo, etc.)?
REALLY? How dumb is that? I have an apartment full of light fixtures that I would gladly add WeMo switches to, and control with the Echo, but not if all I'm going to get is rudimentary On/Off functionality.
yes... dimmers please!
I totally agree!! I need to be able to dim my lights. I purchased a Wemo in wall switch for my front porch and would love to replace ALL of my switches but won't do it without dimmers. Every switch I have dims today and I already have dimmable LED lights throughout. I don't want to go back and buy all new lights again. Besides, many of my light fixtures have multiple bulbs.
Please update to allow dimming! You sell at least a dozen more switches to me alone!!!
oh yea and 3 way compatibility too
